Birthday Block

So at this time I have very little ribbon that is current or will be current on July 1. So for this card I improvised.

  • I colored the Black striped Grosgrain Ribbon with a sponge and Melon Mambo ink.
  • Instead of a knot in the ribbon I used a Rhinestone brad to hold it closed.
  • I stamped the stamp in Melon Mambo and then with the Basic Black Marker I colored two lines of words on the stamp, I then stamped on Whisper White.
  • I Matted this on Basic Black, then Melon Mambo, then Basic Black, to this I added the Ribbon.
  • I ran a piece of Whisper White through the Big Shot in the Perfect Polka Dot folder, mounted it on a Melon Mambo card front and then added the matted phrase.

I like how this one turned out.
